Radar level sensor
The radar level sensor measures the time it takes a pulse wave to travel in both senses the distance between the sensor and the liquid surface below. A special processing procedure ensures a reliable and precise measure.
The sensor is housed in a case made PVDF which provides a IP66 protection.
The measurement occurs without contact between the sensor and the liquid, and is characterized by the absence of moving mechanical parts, so the radar system does not normally require maintenance.
The transducer is powered by 2 wires on which is generated an output current, in the range 4-20 mA, proportional to the level measurement.
The installation does not require special: it is usually mounted on a suitable arm in such a way as to move the transducer from obstacles that could affect the measurement.
Because of the sensor is a noncontact, there is guarantee that the installation is not damaged by objects transported during flood events.
